Meet The Team

Tracy Barnabas

Director and Nominated Individual

Beaumont Home Care was founded after seeing a need for outstanding care in the London and Essex community for the elderly and for those with complex care needs.

I began my career in July 1989 working within Personnel, or Human Resources (HR) as it is now known, and started a rewarding 25-year journey into the world of HR and people management.

In order to consolidate and further my knowledge in HR, I returned to part-time education to undertake a Degree in HR Management and became an affiliated member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.

‘Throughout my career, the area where I have had the most passion and enjoyment is in employee engagement and people management.  This is where my knowledge and experience is utilised to ensure that not only is Beaumont Home Care strategically managed to meet our mission but that our employees (who are at the heart of our company) are recruited with the same values and ethos and are trained, fully qualified, engaged, knowledgeable and above all, happy and feel fulfilled in their role and chosen career path’.

Our Care Team

At Beaumont Home Care we know how important it is to have the best team to support and care for you or your loved ones and for you to be able to trust those carers implicitly.  This is why we have a rigorous and robust recruitment process in place to ensure we only recruit the best!

We know the importance of putting the individuals we care for ‘first’ and always give family members and/or individuals the opportunity to meet new team members and be involved in the recruitment process so we get the right member of staff for our individuals.

We are hugely protective of our team and do everything within our power to retain them.  We are passionate to always take care of our employees by working collaboratively with them to ensure that along with taking their role and responsibilities seriously they also feel happy, engaged, valued and above all have access to all the training and support they need to be able to meet the extremely high standards of care we expect.

Unlike many other care providers, we pay all our employees above the National Minimum Wage as they are valued and important to us.  On a monthly basis we also acknowledge employees’ outstanding efforts by awarding an ‘Outstanding Achievement Reward’.

We continuously motivate and mentor all our employees to grow and develop within their role and on their chosen career path in order to reach their full potential.  All our employees receive full mandatory training (CPD credited), have a full and enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) and go through a vigorous recruitment, selection and compliance process.

Where required employees receive specialised training and MAPA (Management of Actual or Potential Aggression) And Positive behaviour training in order to undertake their job safely and effectively.

Simba - Therapy Dog

I joined Beaumont Home Care in September 2020 as the Company’s PAT Dog and absolutely love my job!

I hold a very important role in the Company as it is my responsibility to visit the individuals we care for to bring happiness, comfort and companionship to those who appreciate and enjoy being able to touch and stroke a friendly dog.

Did you know that a visit from me comes with lots of additional benefits as, accordingly to medical research, stroking and touching a pet can:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Improve cardiovascular health
  • Release endorphins that have a calming effect and can reduce anxiety
  • Diminish physical pain
  • Lessen any depression and improve outlook on life

Many of the people we care for absolutely love animals (just like me) but for one reason or another are no longer able to have a pet of their own and this is where I come in.  When you join the Beaumont family you will be asked during our pre-assessment meeting if you would like a visit from Beaumont’s PAT Dog and if it is something you would like, your details will be added to my diary.

Due to being in such high demand I may not be able to see you on a regular basis but I promise that I will definitely pop in to say hello when I am in your area, and when my handler isn’t looking, I never say no to a biscuit!
